  • Fresh Start was the first residential treatment center opened in the State of California Click Here. Couple that with another fact - Fresh Start is the only drug treatment facility whose program, and its results, are backed up and documented by extensive independent scientific research and outcome studies. No other treatment facility or program has put forth the tremendous effort needed to back up its program and success with such studies and, in fact, most will not even discuss outcome with a prospective client.

    Since its founding nearly four decades ago, Fresh Start has maintained a high success rate. This compares to the average success rate of other programs, which hovers, typically, between 2% and 10%.

    Fresh Start is the only program in the world which offers a no-matter-what six month guarantee which states that, within six months of graduating the program, any student who experiences difficulty in remaining drug and alcohol free may return to the facility for an extensive, individually tailored review program at no charge. Again, no other program makes such an offer, because no other program is as confident of its results as is Fresh Start.

    Most treatment programs are designed to last for a specified period of time, usually 30 days. This obviously means that those designing and running these programs believe that they can predict, with certainty, when an addict will be "cured". At Fresh Start, we know that each case is different. No-one can predict, with certainty, precisely how long it will take to fully handle any individual addict's problem. Therefore, our program is designed to take as long as it takes, at a flat rate charge. In fact, the average duration of our program is between 3 and 5 months. However, each individual is different from each other one, and the program takes as long as necessary to insure that the addict gets the full benefit of the program.

    And what about cost? Obviously, a program which "takes as long as it takes" and whose results are unconditionally guaranteed must cost a tremendous amount. But, again, Fresh Start is different from virtually all of the "for profit" rehab centers. Fresh Start is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) public benefit organization. Our program fees are $33,000 for San Diego (Click Here), Nevada (Click Here), Colorado and Texas. That covers the entire program, INCLUDING the guaranteed review, which is not required in the majority of cases. No supplemental costs, no additional charges. The only possible additional cost is not one which goes to Fresh Start. If the addict is coming off alcohol or certain drugs, he or she may need to go to a medically supervised detox. If this is the case, the medical detox facility will charge for their services. But the Fresh Start program charges are exactly as stated above, no more.
